I get all kinds of reprint requests from brochures to newsletters, textbooks to Ted Talks. One of my more unique reprint requests came from a certain celebrity doctor who wanted to feature this comic on his television show.
The doctor said that he loved comics (especially ones that he was in), showed the comic and read it aloud. I even got a nice laugh from the studio audience. What the hell, even if it was a laugh track, I'll take it.
If you're up for watching a lot of commercials, you can watch the segment that appeared on 4/9/15.
"Half Full" got a nice mention on Comic Strip of the Day.
Mike Peterson writes:
"Maria Scrivan is also a greetings card creator, and her panel, Half Full, tends to be more sweetly silly twists than strong observational humor, but today's offering falls into the latter category.
And I'm calling it "strong observational humor" because that's how I pack for every trip. (Which is the objective standard, after all.)
Well, except that my bathing suit takes up more space. For which may we all be truly grateful."
Thanks Mike! And I'm glad to hear that I'm not alone in my frenetic packing style.
